Niki originally hails from Athens, Georgia but has lived all over the southeastern United States as well as in England and Australia. After a somewhat nomadic life, she settled in Austin in 2011. She practices law by trade and practices yoga to stay sane. Niki's first love is the sun, but her other passions include social justice, animals, and sports. She enjoys water activities of all kinds, hiking, hip hop dance classes, playing with her dog (and your dogs, too), and exploring new places. During the school year, Niki mentors via lunchtime meetings through the Seedling Foundation, and she looks forward to learning and sharing her love of outdoors with new friends in Explore Austin.
